Dukie’s Hornpipe

A Brian Duke composition from Cian’s "Three Shouts from a Hill". I’ve transcribed the flute setting since presumably that’s the original version. The concertina setting is a bit different, particularly at the beginning of the 2nd part which instead goes K: Amin |ABcd eged|cABc AG^FG|. I love the way this tune swaps from major to minor between the parts.

I believe Brian Duke is from Roscommon and he is on the Flute Players of Roscommon Vol.1.

Lol, dow, I love the first part and I hate how it changes to minor, I think it sounds rank!

Yeah but you’re from Melbs so your tastes don’t count!
